It’s another sad day for ground beef lovers. After numerous beef recalls so far this year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service have just announced yet another one.

The ground beef chubs that are being recalled have a production date of Dec. 27, 2018 and include a “Use or Freeze by” date of January 20, 2019.
